  • The process of developing national communications has triggered large-scale networking, capacity-building and the involvement of research organizations and various government departments.
  • The preparation of the two previous national communications led to the development of expert teams for the preparation of GHG inventories as well as assessment of impacts, vulnerability and adaptation.
  • Climate change impact assessment studies in water resources, agriculture, natural ecosystems including forestry, sea level rise, coastal zones, and human health have been refined.
  • Institutional frameworks of coordinating agencies that will prepare the inventory of GHG emissions and suggest potential mitigation measures have been set up.
  • Integrated assessments of Impacts, Vulnerability and Development of Adaptation Frameworks (IAVDAF) as part of the following activities were undertaken:
  • identification of hotspots that will help assess the climate change impacts on various integrated sectors and the associated physical and socio-economic vulnerabilities;
  • themes such as integrated assessments of water-agriculture-food securitylivelihoods adaptation; water-agriculture-human health livelihoods adaptation; forestforest products-livelihoods-adaptation; and the vulnerabilities of energy systems and infrastructure due to the changing temperature and precipitation patterns have been undertaken with a mix of modelling and case studies.
